Stagnant learning environment with low potential for short term growth
ASST. SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Central Texas – October 12, 2018
Spent all year long hustling with lots of different responsibilities but no real potential for growth. Was hired on to be a GM trainee and was eventually forced out due to lack of growth. Horrible internal training, no work / life balance and inconsistent management ruined my desire to continue here!
CSA - Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Waynesboro, GA – October 9, 2018
I liked working there. Things were very interesting there, though. I had fun decorating the sales floor. I loved who I worked with and loved the teamwork. All was well and serene. We all made very great sales and did our best. The day is long but goes by when there's constant customers. We had the greatest time until a new manager came in to work and he was very rude and insulting. He didn't even say hello or introduced himself to me before he started making judgmental statements at all of us. Therefore, I had left.
The Land of lies!! Buddy's Furnishing Franchise is a Joke!
General Manager (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – October 8, 2018
Please stay away from this Franchise in the North Region of Florida and South Georgia!!! Is just a joke... All they want is money and they do not really care about their employees and neither their customers. This company is run in a very old fashion way!!! Everything is done by paper, and very little used of technology!!! Work life is a joke.. They want you to be there 13 to 14 hours most of the days.!!! Worst experience ever!!!
General Manager (Former Employee) – Pensacola, FL – September 26, 2018
Never felt organized. I felt management was never there to help. The culture was not very strong. There was not much I learned from buddy's. I did have the opportunity to provide my own culture and make customers happy.
Customer Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Saint Cloud, FL – August 22, 2018
The hours are Monday-Thursday 10 am to 7 pm besides one day a week I will leave at 6 pm, on Fridays its from 8:30 am to 7 pm and then on Saturday's its 8:30 am to 5pm. I learned how to make sales on furniture how gaming systems work, the workplace culture is relaxed maybe to relaxed for some days. The hardest part of the job is to make sales when you have fly however no one come into the store. The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction of customers.
No longer a productive and inviting work environment
General Manager (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – August 21, 2018
My experience with this company has been a total letdown. The indecisiveness and lack of professionalism and consideration for employees and employee families as well as customers from higher management is disturbing. This has truly become a predatory business accompanied with bad business practices. Very unfortunate and disappointing.
decent salary if you are in management
Unrealistic expectations, long hours and poor quality of life.
Collection Agent (Former Employee) – LaGrange, GA – August 18, 2018
I have never worked for a company so unorganized. Regional manager has no sympathy for anyone & only cares about making his self look good. Has a smart mouth & loves to threaten people’s job 24/7 I feel bad for the store manager because he deserves better.
No breaks other than lunch & low pay for a lot of work
Lack of training and professionalism will be their undoing
General Manager (Former Employee) – GA – August 13, 2018
There was no training I was just thrown into the job and if I made any type of mistake,I would get yelled at and belittled with curse words. Very unprofessional and very unscrupulous practices. Do not trust the lies.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – July 8, 2018
I always hire people that actually want to work and not your friends friends don't like working and being told what to do this is a small tight-knit community in the inside of a building that requires a lot of paying attention a lot of focus and a lot of work it's easy to tell when the work is not getting done it will always showing the numbersI
Fun place to be
Upper management, long hours, unappreciated, leaves you feeling tired and dogged out
This bud infested environment is a miserable place to be employed and wouldn't recommend it to anyone! Male driven with a crab attitude can't help grow the business and will continue to be in their own way
General Manager (Current Employee) – Lakewood, WA – June 21, 2018
Lots of physical labor and not a lot of compensation for the work you do. Job postings say you get paid holidays, not!!! You might get the day off but not an extra day off paid. Benefits are horrible, work-lif balance is a joke. Most of the time you will work 6 days a week, 8am-8pm.
You have some freedom to run your location as if it was your own
I will never forget the moment when I went in for interview, everyone was so happy and approachable that it just felt right. When I left maybe 4 hours after I recieved a call saying when could I start. I was so excited to see what I was going to learn, but at the same time it was intimidating because everyone there had worked there for 5 years minimum and it was even better than I ever thought it was going to be. Everyone helped, no one had problems with helping me or explaining something to me. The training was long and very informative, when I got to doing the hard things it was very easy because of the training. I will never forget my experience here.
